Either way I still don't see why hes getting crapped on so much. The man himself has never spoken with such arrogance to deserve it and this is only the third loss of his entire career. Which just happens to be another controversial stoppage. Everyone loses.
Wile I agree he "could" have came in and won the third and Silva was slowing down, That was not a garbage stoppage. His eye was closed and he had taken a lot of damage, I think he could have gone on but there was enough damage there to justify stopping the fight, that was not a 'BAD CALL" it was a safe call and I cant argue with keeping the fighters safe.
